After initially calling for Obama’s impeachment — with a subsequent rebuttal from the House Speaker — Sarah Palin doubles down on her call for impeachment by taking to the op-ed page of FoxNews (major highlights below): The Constitution provides the remedy for a president who commits “high crimes and misdemeanors.” It’s impeachment.

#Election2012: Obama Handily Wins Re-Election, and the GOP Must Change to Win Nationally; More Confirmations

As of Wednesday, November 7, the electoral count (FoxNews) stands at 303 – 206 in Obama’s favor, with only Florida having yet to complete their tallies. Aside from being shocked (I allowed myself to succumb to the eccentricities of the Morris/Rove/Barone/Ulsterman-WHI “Romeny’s-going-to-win-by-a-landslide” contingent), the bottom line is that Team Obama simply had a better ground […]
